I guess in a normal economy, the 5000g for flying in Northrend (WoW). Spending that burned like *FIRE* (god, I'm cheap).

And then I've been in games with absolutely ruined economies and have spent 'millions' on decent weapons and crafting items.

I spent half of my INF on one piece of the Hecatomb purple IO set in CoH.

Back in vanilla WoW it was the original epic mount, back when 1000G was a lot of money and epic mounts were fairly uncommon. With the advent of TBC, money had become much easier to acquire. Experience to gold quest conversions had been introduced for level-capped players and daily quests were added. Bought Epic flight training for my warrior and druid.

Then wrath came out and any notion of money being hard to acquire went right out the window. Bought epic flight training for my Paladin a bit before Wrath released, so far have bought almost all of the money-sink items. DMC: Greatness was my largest purchase from another player at 5,000G. Have purchased the Dalaran ring up to the current ilvl 251, the Hodir 3-man mammoth and the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth. Next up is probably the motorcycle.

I stopped farming a long time ago, money is just ridiculously easy to get these days and there isn't much to spend it on. Gems and enchants occasionally or consumables and repairs. It always surprises me when I come upon the occasional player who doesn't have money for their own repairs or doesn't have an epic flyer, or in some cases even a regular flyer.
